FT-1 and Macro
Sep 27, 2012

I'm way late to the party but better late than never. I broke down and bought a used FT-1 and have been playing with it with different lenses. One of my favorite F lenses is a Cosina 100mm macro AF (actually labeled Phoenix). For those not familiar this is a cheaply made plastic lens that sounds like a garbage disposal when it focuses, but happens to have really good IQ. natively it is a 1:2 macro and comes with a matched diopter to get to 1:1. So, I put it and the FT-1 on the V1, set it up on a tripod and shot the back of a penny. Vertical adjustment is crude on my tripod so it was hard getting the absolute highest magnification but I think it's pretty close.
